Every cell needs clarity.
— Omar Amaru Bey

Nothing like a full body workout to get the blood flowing thru every cell.  It's real easy to focus on the upper body movements and forget to or better yet neglect the lower part of the body.  I like to call the lower body the lower self and spiritually speaking, the lower self is most people weakest point.  Strengthening the lower body/legs gives you an overall level of focus and mental clarity that you really don't feel while lifting the upper body.  Both are important for sure, but the lower portion just ensures an overall balance for health and functionality.  Besides, have a big upper half and a scrawny lower body just looks dumb as fuck as is.

This nifty workout incorporates two of my favorite movements of all time: push ups and squats.  For this routine, we're using just our own body weight, but if you're thugged out and want to use weights, I'm all about that life.  That heavier the better in any weather.  I was just trying think of a set number of rounds workout, but setting the timer on your phone or watch for 58 minutes sounds just about right.  Why 58 in particular?  I just things to add up to 13.  The push ups can be any variation of your choice and same with the squats.  I'm doing the traditional two legged squats, but one legged pistol squats are your cup of tea, handle that.  Checkout our Rack City post to see the proper way to squat (most people don't know how, truthfully)

I think you can run with this example and get things moving.  If you're not breaking a sweat after the 2nd round, you're not going hard enough and should pick up the pace.  This workout is more towards the side of muscle and mind stamina/endurance, but can also build muscle and induce hypertrophy from all the blood you'll be pumping into your water balloons aka muscles.

This is the perfect regimen if you're just getting back into working out and don't want to touch the weights yet or if you're an intermediately and seriously into fitness.  Throw this into your weekly or daily routine for a good change of pace.  Also, if you're feeling a little off, upset or distracted, don't be afraid to get up and handle a couple rounds, even if you can't dedicate the full 58 minutes; something is always better than nothing when it comes to keeping the body and mind in shape.  I earnestly recommend this workout to any grown men crybabies out there in the world.  You start crying when your mind gets weak.  Christ was a body builder, let's strive to walk in that manner in our every day lives and be the examples the willing world needs us to be.  The clarity attained from this workout will be other worldly.  Nothing quite like sweating out every single doubt and low vibration through your pores while at the same time unlocking things within yourself since muscles does indeed hold memory.  Physical movement is quite deeper than the outside transformation most people look to first.

Do this outside if at all possible.  That fresh air will circulate through every cell in your body to clean you out and usher in the nutrients you truly need to be your strongest and lightest hearted.  You might even notice a bigger pump.  Don't get it twisted, you may not be running around, but this is a cardio workout too.  Training the lower body always engages that your lunges are put to work and your heart is working to become stronger.  Throwing in these push ups is like icing on the plant based cake.  Nature always wins.  Thank you.

Personally, I want to work up to 50 rounds in one day soon and I will.  Spring/Summer is right around the corner and we have to be mighty in these Clarity Daily® tees.
